UK Coach John Calipari was in Georgia on Wednesday night to watch Sharife Cooper, one of UK’s top 2020 recruiting targets and an elite point guard in the junior class.
Cooper — a 6-foot prospect from the Atlanta area — has been arguably the top player in all of high school basketball this season. He received a UK scholarship offer prior to the season and was one of the standouts on the Nike circuit this past summer. Cooper is the No. 18 overall player in the 2020 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
Auburn is seen as another possible frontrunner in the early stages Cooper’s recruitment. His father talked to the Herald-Leader about the five-star point guard earlier this month. You can read that story here.
